Words and images by Ian Macbeth.
Why do I like oil pastels? It’s partly because of the softness, their ability to be blended on the page. It’s also because the end result can look like an oil painting without all the hassle that goes into making one of those.
But maybe it’s just because I like the strong colours, or even because they remind me of the crayons we used at school! Who knows, but it’s sure to say I like the feel of using them and what I can make with them. Check out these pictures below and feel free to comment on whether you like them or not!
